Thank you for all your suggestions.
She did have a UTI like they had told me originally but they treated it twice with the wrong antibiotic. They kept her in the hospital and are treating it more aggressively. She was dehydrated even tho i was chasing her around with water etc. The painkillers caused most of that.
She seemed better when i went in to see her yesterday. NO more gaping mouth
open or garbled speech. She's still tired though.
I was originally upset at the doc in the ER (before she got admitted) who wanted to blame ALL her symptoms on the alzheimers. When i asked about
her shaky walking he said: "well that happens and she won't be able to do what she did before". I was like......... this JUST started and something is causing it- its not her baseline at all. I also tried to explain she doesn't normally look catatonic but until the tests came back (that showed her electrolytes were all out of whack cause of the dehydration and that the UTI was still there etc) i don't think he really was listening to me.
HOpefully she keeps improving and gets back to her baseline. She might have to go to rehab for her walking- usuallly that takes a little bit to come back after soomething like this.
Again thanks you guys
